            The Pantaloons open air theatre presents A Midsummer Night’s Dream

            FRIENDS OF HOW HILL EVENT

            Midsummer night. An enchanted forest. Puck and his musical fairy band tell a tale of lovers, mechanicals, and magical mayhem. The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons present their innovative and hilarious version of Shakespeare’s timeless comedy – told, as ever, in their own distinctive and anarchic style.

            “Ingenious… The madness of Shakespeare’s Dream came through with such enthusiasm and natural comedy… I can’t really offer enough praise.” (Northern Echo)
